On delivery, car had undetected coolant leak from badly tightened hose - could have seized the engine.
Within first year, electric rear window jammed due to loose guide.
Car had problems with starting with a low fuel level, seems to have gone away after extensive tinkering by dealer.
Just out of warranty, on first MOT inspection, nearly failed on rear anti-roll bar link wear. Volvo agreed 50% rebate on cost of renewing. Mileage only approx 25k! Not spotted by dealer on recent big service when still in warranty.
Again just out of warranty, noticed discolouration of paint on the external plastic infill trims which run full length of cabin between top of doors and the roof rails. Apparently known fault and Volvo only again agreeing to 50%, still having to fork-out £110.
This car is very comfortable and pleasant to drive.
Am very disappointed that so many things have gone wrong with it and that Volvo are only partially accepting liability for things which they knew were defective.
It is very thirsty (about 24-25 mpg average) but accelerates and cruises well on 200 bhp.
Dealer service no better than Ford.
